Why, for years, is there no option to turn off 1-click?

Because Amazon has patented the one click process and that is their business model?

Unless you want to change which card you want to use for one click digital purchases each time, just choose that credit card as your one click default.

So you found people have been asking about it for years... I take it you didn't also find that people have been explaining it for years??

Seeing that people have been asking this question and complaining about it and the fact that Amazon has not changed it should tell you that it is here to stay.

Just like everyone else you have to learn to adjust. If you want to change the card the charges, you just have to do it before you hit the one-click button. I used to change my card for payments once in a while--it was a pain but that was my choice.

If the one-click choice is bothersome for you, get a gift card and use that. That way you do not have to change the payment method. The gift card will be use first until it is use up. This advice has been given several times in all the other threads complaining about this.
